Nice! It works very well for such large targets! Was it dark when you filmed it?
It was twilight when I spotted the herd and more or less totally dark when I filmed them. This evening I tracked another herd in total darkness with the IR and switched ON the Spotlight on Visual for a while. It was remarkable; will post that footage sometime. Am very content with the M2ED.

I design & implement AI based solutions to mitigate Human~Wildlife Conflict. The M2ED is a great tool for that.

Interesting work! Would love to learn more about what you are doing. Before I started teaching, I used to be an environmental monitor/wildlife biologist working for our state highway department to help them protect sensitive bighorn sheep and desert tortoises on highway construction projects. We used to implement trail cameras a lot for our work, but it would have been great to use a drone for detecting roadside wildlife at night!

Please check out this video clip, "Technical Presentation of AI based Elephant Early Warning System for Railway Tracks LD Ver 10", available at :
Although this Presentation is for Mitigation of Human~Elephant Conflict on Railway Tracks, the AI Technology can be used on any landscape and for detecting both animals as well as humans.
